Ancient Aliens

A couple of weeks ago I saw this documentary on the History Channel called "Ancient Aliens" and it kinda intrigued me.

Some of the evidences seem far off and false but others I found quite amazing.
What if life on Earth began in outer space? What if we are not alone in the universe?

See for yourself the first part of the documentary. Enjoy!

Irena Sendler - an amazing woman

Irena Sendler was a Polish Catholic social worker who served in the Polish Underground and the ┼╗egota resistance organization in German-occupied Warsaw during World War II.

Why am I writing about her? Irena assisted by some two dozen other ┼╗egota members, saved 2,500 Jewish children from the Nazi camps by smuggling them out of the Warsaw Ghetto, providing them with false documents, and sheltering them in individual and group children's homes outside the Ghetto.

In 2007 she was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize but some other guy from Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change won instead (you may know him, he was the former Vice President of the United States, Al Gore).

Her regret in life was that she could have done more. RIP, Irene.
